Which state is responsible for turning Delhi into a gas chamber, Haryana or Punjab? This NASA image has the answer

Delhi has been reeling under the toxic air since a few days because of the poisonous gas emanating from the stubble burning coupled with pollution. This has led to severe health crisis and state government has declared holidays in schools. 

The FIRMS data of NASA has indicated that there have been no severe cases of stubble burning activities in the state of Haryana. Instead, the map indicates several fire incidents in Congress-ruled Punjab, which is one of the main reasons for the sustained pollution in Delhi.

NASA’s FIRMS indicating that fire incidents emanating from Haryana are almost near zero compared to Punjab.

This despite the fact that Punjab CM Capt Amarinder Singh had announced fines to farmers for violating rules and burning the stubble. In fact, he had also said that putting the blame on his state for the toxic air across the land-locked North India would be incorrect.

Capt Amarinder had instead blamed Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and accused the latter of playing politics. He had also termed the ‘anti-farmer’ steps he had to take, like fining them for burning stubble, as being ‘against his conscience’.
